This season has kicked off with a flurry of activity, welcoming great fashion brands from Germany, the Netherlands, Great Britain, and France as our newest clients. These young, incredibly talented fashion designers captivate us with their belief that fashion transcends mere clothing, shaping our daily lives, moods, and society without even realizing it. Their boldness, coupled with the use of refined fabrics, defines their creative vision, while our role at JA lies in the beauty of craftsmanship.
Delivering a comprehensive package to retail shops, and ultimately to the end customer, entails a meticulous and detailed process. Often our journey with a new client begins with an email inquiry seeking reliable textile manufacturing to produce their collections and orders. An example of such an email might read:
“I am reaching out as a Fashion Brand in search of a textile and fashion agency known for high-quality, reliable, and timely production. My aim is to establish a robust working relationship and open communication channels with you I can trust to support the growth of my business. I currently have multiple designs ready for sampling and production.
Attached, you will find the tech packs for the following styles:
Style 002 & 003: A stretch knit two-piece set consisting of a skirt and coordinating top. For the initial order, we are interested in 420 sets, divided into two colorways – black and ivory – and four sizes – XS, S, M, & L.
Style 004 & 005: A tailored crepe fabric two-piece set featuring a skort and coordinating top. For the initial order, we seek 420 sets, split into three colorways – black, ivory, and pinstripe – and four sizes – XS, S, M, & L.
To initiate our collaboration, I would like to request samples of each design to evaluate your factory’s quality, timeliness, and communication. I kindly ask you to review the tech packs and provide a quotation for the requested items. Your prompt response would be greatly appreciated.”
At JA, we believe that sampling is an essential step in ensuring the quality and precision of our designs before proceeding with SMS’s or mass production, where meticulous attention to fabrics, trims and workmanship ensures that the final product meets our standards. Prototypes before SMS (Salesman Samples) as well as production samples prior to mass production are always free of charge.
